The Spingboks have Eddie Jones and we think it’s fantastic that we have him controlling our backline and that we are getting one up on the Aussies.
I saw Alan Donald being interviewed when England was playing SA in the T20 World Cup on Sunday. Strangely though, he was not wearing SA kit. He was wearing England kit. My first reaction was to swear at him and call him a traitor. But then I thought about it and decided that he is doing what is best for him, his family and his career. His career is cricket. The job takes him wherever it takes him.
If he were a banker and he was promoted and asked to head up the British branch in London, we’d all applaud him, but because it is sport, our beloved sport, we berate people like Donald. And he isn’t alone. There are many SA sportsmen and women playing sports for other nations. Just look at the Rugby World Cup. Almost every team in the tournament has an ex-SA player playing for them.
I want to know what you think. Is Donald out of his mind? Is he simply earning a living and why is it that he isn’t the bowling coach for SA?
